The BEST (Bariatric Endoscopy Surgery Trends) Metabolic Surgery Conference was held this past June 15th to 17th in Pune, India.  The well organized and attended event boasted an international faculty with some of the most accomplished and skilled pioneers in the field, including Epic Care’s very own bariatric specialist Dr. Ajay Upadhyay.  The conference was an opportunity to share cutting edge clinical innovations, trends, and techniques among the world’s most experienced surgeons.  In addition to more traditional sessions, the program included 16 real-time, live procedure broadcasts with panel moderators to facilitate bidirectional dialogue and even included a remote procedure from Brazil!  For his part, Dr. Upadhyay performed a live laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy in the operating theatre and served as a moderator panel chairperson for his colleagues.  He was selected to present the only video keynote session on robotic bariatric surgery and a second video on robotic redo procedures.  “It was a really wonderful opportunity to exchange ideas with some of the foremost providers in our field.  And the food was really good too!”

As a general surgeon, Dr. Upadhyay brings decades of expertise to the team here in the East Bay. His specialties include Laparoscopic and Robotic Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Surgery, Bariatric Surgery and Advanced Gastrointestinal Surgery.  Moreover, Dr. Upadhyay just completed his 500th robotic surgery- a significant milestone in minimally invasive surgery (MIS) practice and a true testament to his dedication to the craft of medicine.  Congratulations to Dr. Upadhyay for his achievement and for being invited to participate in the BEST Metabolic Surgery Conference!
